Bird-a-thon 2018 is Scheduled for May 11–12

Because Nature Needs Our Focus

Bird-a-thon logo

Bird-a-thon, Mass Audubon’s largest fundraiser, brings together supporters from across the state to raise essential funds for nature conservation, education, and advocacy and to compete in an exciting birding competition. Each year, over 20 teams compete to spot as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period. Team members and other supporters raise money for Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs in honor of their participation.

Since the event began in 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised over $3 million for Mass Audubon, its sanctuaries, and its programs across the state.
